THE LEATHER JACKET
summer dresses used to be just that, for summer. but not anymore. they can be paired with a sweater or a cardigan, tights and boots. joy bryant pulls this off quite well. matching a cardigan or sweatwer to atleast one of the colors in the dress is a great way to make the outfit pop. (chiffon with lace trim dress, Kate Moss for Topshop, $145)
ive already blogged about the cargos before. i love them.cargo pants like vitoria beckham's are as comfy and easy to wear as denim, working equally well day or night. they also follow in the footsteps of the fall trend of the military look.
i love love love the fur vest. i must get one this season.i love how rachel zoe rocks these with scarves and oversized handbags. they are so chic and upscale.Layer under a coat to get a nonbulky boost of warmth or throw it on with jeans to add instant polish like elle macpherson. it gives a casual jeans and long sleeve shirt an entire new feel when you throw on a fur vest.
(Fair Isle is a traditional knitting technique used to create patterns with multiple colors. It is named after FAIR ISLE, a tiny island in the north of scotland, that forms part of the shetland islands)
on a cold night, a comfy and cozy fair isle sweater will def keep you warm. try something with a folksy spin like rhianna. this scottish sweater has a classic pattern, but its shape is far from traditional. drape it over pants, or belt it over a skirt for a more pulled-together look. (acrylic sweater, Kensie, $78; macys.com)
animal prints can be worn with solids, like on lily allen, or with another print.im not sure how i feel about mixing prints, but if you do, choose a bold print that doesn't clash but instead adds contrast. (banana republic, $70)
pair it with a body-skimming silk blouse like taylor swift to offset the fullness and give a relaxed finished look tothe outfit. bulk on the bottom means slim on top.tie on a belt to define your waist.
i love these with the fur on the collar. the new versions are tailored and can add edge to an evening look. or throw on tights and boots like michelle willaims for an outfit that's anything but standard
